Sam Claflin, 30, stars as Philip, a young Englishman looking to exact revenge in My Cousin Rachel. Philip believes that his cousin, Rachel, portrayed by Rachel Weisz, murdered his only guardian after receiving mysterious letters from the man’s deathbed. As you can see in the trailer below, Philip vows to give Rachel what she deserves for taking his guardian’s life, but his obsession quickly turns into infatuation and instead he finds himself in love with her. This dark romance takes one very unexpected twist, and now HollywoodLife.com has your first look at some EXCLUSIVE stills from the film! There are seven images in total for you to check out, and they can all be found by clicking into the gallery above.
In one still, Philip and Rachel get very close in a field of flowers during a moment alone. Another shows Philip looking out through a doorway as Rachel mysteriously looks on from behind. Perhaps the most interesting of all the images is the one of Philip escorting Rachel into a church. She’s dressed in all black, including a veil covering her face, and the so-called enemies are locked arm-in-arm as they make their entrance. Hmm! Another very interesting still shows Rachel and Philip standing in the dark, the space around them only illuminated by a candle that he’s holding. Rachel appears to be dressed in a nightgown as Philip looks down at her.
